are bee grijingly sticking with gulf of mexico begrudgingly sticking with obama, what he did in that first debate gave enough people, i think, even if it's not showing up in the polls yet, you know what? when the -- yeah, there's enough to go over there. i'm not going to stick with this guy. and i think if there's any surprise in the polls, i think it's going to swing in romney's favor. >> i'm starting to think that, too, mika. this is, again, we're getting so close. the president's still sitting at 47%, 48% in a lot of the nationally positives. you know, turnout can get you a percentage point. but if mitt romney keeps moving in the direction he's moving, that's different. if somebody has a cell phone on, you need to turn it off, steve rattner. >> i was just about to go to the financier's chart. >> steve rattner's always had a blackberry and it's never been a problem. >> little-known fact for kids at home if you want to be on "morning joe," at&t signals interfere with whatever we're wearing. >> but i'm getting brain waves from it. it's inspiration. >> the reason why. that's actually the fi

holds all of those carry states from 2004 and adds new mexico, then wins nevada, colorado and iowa, which are very possible because of hispanics in the west, obama could win nevada and colorado. and then hold iowa, maybe lose ohio, lose virginia, lose florida, could do all of those and still narrowly win. >> okay. let's go to mitt romney. what he needs to get to 270 in the big way. >> so the obvious one for mitt romney is to sweep the big three. if he sweeps 40i, virginia and florida, it's all three of those, he could lose colorado, lose nevada, lose new hampshire, lose wisconsin, lose all of those states, and he would still win, he would get there very narrowly but he would be over 270. >> okay. so you get flohva from mitt romney. but you also have a scenario that he can still win if he takes florida, only. >> yeah. it's a little complicated. but i went back to look and see, can he win with just winning one of those or just two of those three? no question, he could win with two of those three. but if he were to win with just florida, for example, he would have to do it by sweeping
another state. we figured out that if you give obama all of john kerry's states, give him knew mexico where he's favored and give him ohio, guess where that gets him, 269. that means we're at a tie, 269, 269. none of us welcomes that scenario. that means that the president's going to need one of these other states. iowa is a close one because it's another industrial midwestern state. nevada, you know, another possibility. virginia, obama needs one more if he's going to get ohio and romney gets all of the others. >> one of the key weeks ahead for us. thanks. >>> speaking of mistakes, one battleground has the best track record of picking the winner of presidential elections since 1900. ohio. no republican has won the presidency without winning ohio. that's why we've seen team romney campaigning there aggressively in the last few weeks. the president though man taning a solid advantage there. this week president obama will get help in ohio from bubba and the boss. bill clinton and bruce springstein who will stump together in parma. joining me is darryl rowland. thanks for being with us.

and george romney's father never joined the milt because he spent much of his life in mexico because they were hiding out from the enforcement of the laws of poligamy. miles park romney fled the country, never considered joining the military of a country whose laws he found so personally oppressive. since romney men have no idea what the weight of service feels like, mitt romney was actually able to say this. he was asked how many of your sons are currently serving in the military? >> one of the ways my sons are showing support for our great country are helping is get me elected because they think i will be a great president. >> that continues to intrigue in choiring reporters. >> all of you served your church going on missions. did you ever consider serving your country by putting on a uniform? >> i think we can look at the guys who serve and say that is the biggest sacrifice. it is nothing that any of us did but we look to those guys with a tremendous amount of respect. >> do you regret that you never served? >> i look at my family and i spepd a lot of tie time at the va hospital.

like new mexico and pennsylvania. really? polls should be a snapshot of the current state of the race and there's no doubt mitt romney is benefitting from his debate performance last week. but over "the new york times," the forecast shows president obama still holds a 70% chance of winning the election. the percentage is back in line with the state of the race before the political conventions. president obama made some gains after the dnc. mitt romney erase d those gains in the debate. so the race is back to where it was in august. eight years ago today, cnn poll after the first presidential poll put john kerry on top of george bush by one percentage point. the race is close. this should surprise no one in america. every vote is going to count. there's been bipartisan agreement about a close race for months. >> this race, as we say in the south, it's as tight as a tick on a dog and it's going to stay that way until november. >> nothing is set in concrete. >> this is a very tight race. we've always believed that there's very little elasticity in the election. >> when a race is this clo
in mexico. had he been born of mexican participan parents, he might have a better shot. >> your policies suck. being latino wouldn't win you the election but saying jokingly that you wish you were might actually lose it for you. >> the president needs to go after mitt romney but he can't look like a pit bull on stage. that's a tough order. it's a fine line to walk. the debate will not be the same as it was two weeks ago. the podiums are gone. the candidates will have to look comfortable and welcoming to a room full of undecided voters. mitt romney showed in the last debate he can make the most of his rehearsed lines to connect with regular voters. >> i have had the occasion of meeting people across the country. i was in dayton, ohio, and a woman grabbed my arm and said i've been out of work, can you help me? and a rally in denver, a woman said my husband has had four jobs in three years, part-time jobs, he's lost his most recent job and we have now lost our home. can you help us? and the answer is yes. we can help. but it's going to take a different path. >> and what about those workers

which would be done by executive order not legislation, i would reinstate the mexico city policy. >> affirmative action, civil rights group rally as the supreme court revisit also race can be a factor in college admissions. and won't you be my neighbor? late night's jimmy fallon visits mr. romney's neighborhood. >> it's a beautiful day in the neighborhood. beautiful day for a neighbor. would you be mine? could you be mine? hello, neighbor. you see this? it's called a wallet. inside of a wallet, oh, that's where money goes. now, do you know what money is? i'm guessing no, because you're watching public television. >> good day. i'm andrea mitchell live in washington. the house republican hearings on last month's terrorist attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi are under way now on capitol hill. chairman darrell issa opened the hearings demanding answers from the state department about their response to the incident. as well as the amount of security personnel in place before september 11th. >> we know that the tragedy in benghazi ended as it did. we now know that, in fact, it was
is that, you know here, did say he would reinstate the mexico city policy which would keep federal funding from going to fund abortions. that's something we do like. but there's also a difference you have to note from a candidate. mitt is doing something smart here. he's saying, look, i know what i believe but here's the things i'm going to be able to do as president. contrast that with barack obama who made all these wild promises and pledges and 00 come through a -- follow through on any of them and you see kind of a pragmatic mitt romney who says this is what i believe in but this is what i know i can accomplish. i'm not going to overpromise here. >> your response? >> i appreciate my fellow south carolinian's comments about policy but here is a fact. so the capital of japan is tokyo. we know thesing a fact. here is the fact. not a single taxpayer dollar goes to fund abortions. not one. not even a cent. not even a penny. not one. the theory of reinstituting the policy is a farce. mitt romney was pro-choice. now -- then pro-life. then this morning he was pro-choice and now andrea is sayin
company but he was born in mexico. and, had had he been born of mexican paperses i would have a better shot at winning. actually, mitt, that is so true. the reason latinos aren't voting for you because your policies suck. >> that was rosie perez a peering in a new web ad sponsored by a pro obama super pack that comes as a new poll shows support for president obama slipping slightly from 72% to 67%. while mitt romney support has itched up three points from 20% to 23%. immigration dominated the conversation during the republican primaries it's been largely absent from the general. romney outflanked his opponents taking a hard right tack on illegal immigration. remember this one. >> if you say that we should not educate children who have come into our state for no other reason than they've been brought there by no fault of their own i don't think you have a heart. >> i think if you're opposed to illegal immigration it doesn't mean you don't have a heart. you have a heart and a brain. >> now as part of his great pivot to the middle romney has adopted softer language focusing on the preside
, the great-grandson and the funniest when he looked to mitt romney and he said your dad is going to mexico and you have kids, are you sure you're not catholic and that got a big laugh throughout the room. i would say in terms of looking at their body and interaction, chuck, i kept an eye on them all night, not a lot of interaction. you had the cardinal obviously sitting between them. i was also shocked not a lot of interaction between president obama and ann romney. kind of a coldness there just from viewing it from afar. >> it is rough, buddy. it is a rough campaign. i had a feeling this would get uglier in the next 18 days. it was good to have them at least show the public that maybe they can still have a sense of humor. >> it seemed heart fefelt when y talked about each other's family and good to have a cardinal between them. >> neither political party right now, the operatives, have no sense of humor anymore. luke russert, thank you very much. this morning early christmas presents for political junkies. it's a string of fiery and feisty senate debates in some of the toughest senate rac
the roster of swing states change. right. new mexico was won by bush in '04, contested in '08 and this time around the republicans are not contesting it. arizona is just out of reach for the democrats. it will become in reach pretty soon and i think you know, maybe 20 years it will be a democratic state. >> which is -- there was some talk in, you know, election cycles from not too too many election cycles from now, maybe texas will be a state where democrats -- >> but on the other hand, missouri, arkansas, west virginia are gone. >> they're gone and not coming back. >> right. >> i mean, i think, you know, republican party is right to be kind of panicky about this. these parties are flexible and there are obvious paths to fixing it. is president romney gets done comprehensive immigration reform and an enormous amount of political pressure to do that if he wants to get reelected. >> worth noting, andrew ross is sorkin in terms of money in this race, i thought this was interesting, from an obama campaign aide this is reported in play book this morning -- we were talking before this show began,
of mexico or heavy oil from venezuela. there's lots of oil in these places, but they're not going to flow at the kind of prices that u.s. motorists want to fill up at. >> jeff, i think i agree with you that there's very little that the president can do about gas prices. it's simple supply and demand, so then isn't the only thing that an american president should say about gas prices is that he promises to release as much u.s. oil into the population as he possibly can as we can possibly sustain to keep demand low and supply high? >> well, as i say, the strategic reserve a finite amount and you can artificially depress oil prices temporarily. >> right. >> but you're going to have to rebuild that. let's hear what the market a telling us. brent today is $110 a barrel. that's telling us that oil is getting scarce and dear. the message should be to consume less, not to override it with artificial government policies like releasing strategic reserves or cutting gasoline taxes because really what we're doing is overriding the market's message and that's going to make it more difficult, not easie
, did harry reid just show that -- i guess my question is, is nevada the next new mexico where four years from now we won't even have it on the initial battleground map? it will essentially get a couple visits early from a republican and then it's just a lock for whoef the democratic nominee is? >> i'm not sure about that. i don't want to take it off the battleground status. >> i know you don't. >> but i think the points you're making is right. there might be a microcosm with republican party with the burgeoning hispanic population. the republicans need to find a way to talk to the hispanic community. they cannot sustain 30 and 40-point losses in that community in nevada and hope to ever win nevada again. we'll see what happens but early numbers here looks like the hispanic vote is turning out. the culinary union, biggest union, most of the gaming employees are represented, huge hispanic population. they're turning out to vote. it's very difficult tore me to make the argument that nevada is going to be a battleground state again in four years. but i may try anyway. >> i've had repub
on what happens here. that wasn't discussed. as you said issues with mexico, the drug trade. they become more about sort of each of the two candidates' agendas going in, consultants pivot to the economy make the debate about this and the moderator that has a narrow set of issues they want to cover and so much of the rest of what matters to voters at the end of the day don't get covered. the debate was limited in. >> governor, did you think when they did talk about domestic affairs, the auto bailout and some bit of gas prices and so forth, that resonated with the american public osh just campaign -- >> i think a little more so, although again, governor romney has consistently in these debates shown a wanton disregard for the facts. he said his plan was a managed bankruptcy and that he did favor some form of government aid. he talked about loan guarantees. guarantees are only valuable if someone's willing to loan you the money. >> right. >> and the point of it is and where president obama saved the auto industry nobody was willing to loan them the money or to invest, not bain capital not a
. that's why you see support in states like nevada and new mexico, virginia and florida and ohio from the latino and hispanic communities. these are votes that the president has earned based on the actions he's taken on behalf of the community over the last 12 months, not just the last 12 months but three and a half years, and i take the president at his word that's something he'll pursue in a second term. so the record is very, very stark as it relates to the issue of immigration. the president has a positive and strong one. look what he did earlier this year. and look what the things that governor romney has said during the debates. again, look that was a perfect example. he tried to outdo the most anti-immigration person on the stage in the form of all -- his other republican opponents. he'll -- governor romney is a person who will say anything at the moment that is politically expedient to get him elected. the american people see that. this is about trust and he's losing the trust of the american people not gaining it in the final 14 days. >> bo biden just add before i let you go,
? they're in china, mexico, canada, and countries that have made themselves more attractive for entrepreneurs and business and investment, even as president obama's policies have made it less attractive for them here. and so today, his campaign tries to deflect and detract, to minimize the failures and to make this election about small shiny objects. but this election matters more than that. it matters to your family, it matters to the senior who needs to get an appointment with a medical specialist but is told by one receptionist after another that the doctor isn't taking any new medicare patients, because medicare has been slashed to pay for obama care. it matters to the man from wisconsin i spoke with several days ago, and what we're supposed to be his best work years, he used to have a job at $25 an hour with benefits and now has one at $8 an hour without benefits. it matters because of the college student graduating this spring with 10 to $20,000 in student debt. who now learns that she'll also be paying for $50,000 in government debt. a burden that will put the america
